Meatless Mondays make some hate the not-so-fun, return-of-the-grind day. But it need not be so… make any meatless day magical with this mushroom pasta bake of miracles. The miracle being, you won't even miss meat with the double umami bomb of mushrooms and Asiago. Meatless Monday's a drag? Miss me with that.

Easy way to remove thyme from stem: just pinch the top and run your fingers down the stem. Presto! The leaves should just fall off.

  1. 1

    Boil the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 10-12 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta into a colander. While pasta boils, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices. Halve bread lengthwise. Stem and mince thyme. Mince garlic.

  3. 3

    Cook Mushrooms and Make Sauce

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add mushrooms to hot pan and cook undisturbed until starting to brown, 2-3 minutes. Then stir occasionally until tender, 5-7 minutes. Stir in half the garlic (reserve remaining for garlic bread), ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Cook until fragrant, 30-60 seconds. Add cream, reserved pasta cooking water, Parmesan, half the Asiago cheese (reserve remaining for topping), and pasta. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir constantly until thickened slightly, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Bake the Pasta

    Spoon pasta and sauce into prepared casserole dish. Top evenly with panko, thyme, and remaining Asiago cheese. Spray a piece of foil with cooking spray and cover casserole dish, sprayed side down. Bake in hot oven, 10 minutes. Uncover, and bake again until top is lightly browned, 8-10 minutes. While pasta bakes uncovered, make garlic bread.

    Make Garlic Bread and Finish Dish

    Drizzle 2 tsp. olive oil over cut sides of bread. Spread evenly with remaining garlic. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake until lightly browned, 3-5 minutes. Plate dish as pictured on front of card. Bon appétit!
